Hey guys, I just had an idea and decided to get opinions on it. Do you guys think that the 3DS's release date should have been later than it was? Would the wait be worth it to make huge titles launch date titles or was it a good idea to release the system when it was released?
I personally like the release date, as it's sort of like the appetizer before a main course. Good now, and will be absolutely amazing later.

In hindsight, I think the PR would have been better for Nintendo to have held off until Zelda and the eShop and internet was ready and on the system. Personally, I had a lot of fun with SSF4 post launch and don't regret it.

That being said, I would rather things have gone down this way as opposed to trying for a near holiday release with the big name titles and Nintendo releasing too few systems to meet demand to inflate interest in the system a go for a buzz.
Nobody's got anything on me, brother, sir. I've been out of the rookers of the milicents for a long time now.

Honestly, with the pace that all of the non-remake games are going the 3ds should have been held off for a year.

"I don't want to wait for the good games, therefore the system should have launched when those games were ready" is terrible logic. People would still wait for the games anyway, and everyone that wanted the system earlier would get shafted.

Yes, I'd say November-ish. The 3DS could have used the sales boost the holiday season would have given it, plus there would be more (better) games out for it too.
I hate people in general.
